OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Cortni Emanuel’s unearned run in the top of the seventh inning gave upstart Georgia a 5-4 win over Florida State on Thursday in the Women’s College World Series.
Emanuel reached on an error, stole second, advanced to third on an error and scored when Alyssa DiCarlo grounded out.
Georgia (46-18), the lowest seed in the series, took advantage of a world series record-tying seven errors by the Seminoles.
Florida State (53-9) scored in the first inning when Jessica Warren knocked the ball just over the centerfield fence to make it 2-0.
Georgia rallied with two unearned runs in the second, and the Bulldogs got their bats going in the third when DiCarlo and Tina Iosefa hit RBI singles to give Georgia a 4-2 lead.
Florida State’s Alex Powers cranked a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game.
